Yes, i told even before the first release that my plans is make an outside areae showing the city in the far background with a road leading to there and that will be the true exit, not simply pressing on the door and poof.

For now it shouldn't be hard to make the valley i want to make the player fight the remanining monsters, then since the city will be background only, i do not have to care with detailings the streets on it, only the buildings.

Make sense to me, don't need more detail to end it in an epic way, right?

It looks interesting but the problem with these kind of scales is the heavy tiling of the lowres textures.

Detail is something quite required for this since as Tormentor pointed out, the way the outside of the map is by now is pretty dull due to the lack of detailing and that makes the textures tiles too much, the vanilla textures were never meant to tile in extreme scales as this one.

BTW, Tormentor you know me by my other works, never that i will deliver this map with the low amount of details it have in the outside part for now, i will try make some tiles breaks on it and yet try not go too much beyond the visual feeling of maps made around 2000.

Okay some progress were made and here's the last screenshot before the final release:

Probably it will be finished by this week or the first half of the next.

Disable texture filtering, dynamic lights, put lightmode in software, enable banded software lightmode...

Well i made this cfg if you don't want setup everything to make OGL looks like SW renderer, put it in the same folder where gzdoom exe is and then open the game and type "exec softsim.cfg" in console and you're done, the only thing that this config don't enable from Software mode is the palette tonemap because the skybox was made in truecolor instead of paletted.

There seem to be a couple of glitches now... when I get into the north hangar, the gates shut and don't open. I've killed everything in the room, and I haven't found any switches that appeared to trigger the gates to open/close within the hangar.

Also, after unlocking the adjacent room to the north hangar (which connects the north hangar with the other big room that comes after the teleporter slaughterfest), the gates to the city still won't open.

1. Try without the mod you're using, a friend told me the same thing and he was playing the map with Smooth Doom which for some reason bugs the script which should open the door after you kill all imps and pinkies.

2. Follow the above

TBH don't play this with any mod that breaks Thing_Count which a couple of mods loves to do because of A_SpawnItemEx or other trickery to spawn monsters the wrong way, it breaks a ton of maps which relies in TIDs in monsters to work properly, this map is no exception.

Ah. Brutal Guncaster will do that. Playing with normal Guncaster, like I was doing, should work.

Oh well, gotta restart... (shrug)

Impressive...most impressive. Kinda like what would happen if Michael Krause made ZDoom maps.
